Webi Changing Connection Error - Universe Generation Failed For Resource ID


Hi again Webi gurus!

In Webi BI4 SP04 patch 1, when changing an olap connection source from one Bex query to another Bex query get error "Universe Generation Failed For Resource ID" See workflow and screen shot below.

Further, to this we can not add a new query connection, then delete the old one as we get same error.

So the report is corrupted and we lose all the work when this occurs.

The big pain here is that we want to create a web report template to a standard connection with all the formatting in header, fonts, chart types etc,

then change the connection and reassign to report elements.

The user is administrator and has permissions to connection and olap connection is using pre-defined user

Using the olap conneciton in a new query with no problem.

Thank you for your time!
